Today, I promise I will not quit.
I pledge that no matter, how many ups and
downs I pass through,
I will continue on my journey.
I pledge to make a NEW START today,
and forgive myself for my past,
and to stop being so critical of myself.
I pledge to take control of myself,
To Stop making excuses,
And stop blaming other people or situations.
I pledge to treat myself as I would my Best
Because that is who I am.
I pledge to stay in the race
and to be a WINNER!
This is a pledge that i am so grateful to LYNMEINDERS for having posted on her blog....
This is something i am going to stand on....
I appreciate you all my friends.....
Blessings to you all

This was not a good weekend for me. This time I went the other direction. My eating was good, but my exercise was non existent. We were busy with showings on Saturday and I think that buyer is going to write an offer on a house on Wednesday. We are going back for another showing. We started showings at 11 and, by the time we finished, it was almost 2 and we hadn't had lunch. We met the kids for lunch. I was good and had a turkey wrap w/light mayo.
Anyway, by the time we got home is was almost 4 and I was tired. So much for Saturday.
Yesterday, our showings didn't start until 5. We were going to go to the barn in the afternoon, but then she wanted to change my time until later and that would just goof up the showings. My husband also just wanted a day to veg as he never gets that. Then we got a text from the buyer who made us run out in the storms because she absolutely "had" to see the condo that night. She texted me yesterday (over two weeks later) that she had decided not to buy anything after all. That totally put us in a funk, but I am adding more rules to my showings. I will not go farther than 10 miles for one property. If people are serious, they will have a list of at least 3 they want to see.
So, no exercise yesterday. But, again, did well with my eating. We didn't get home from showings yesterday until 8:00 last night. I changed JC to tomorrow. There is no riding on Monday which would be the easiest day for me. I even told buyers that I would not take them out tomorrow as I had a previous appointment.
So, I need to get back to it! Sometimes, I think our bodies tell us what they need and when they need a break. Today, my break is over. Back to exercise! I have started doing the chair marching so when I have to sit on the computer, at least I am moving :)

For those of you who follow my life, you know that I am a rapid response agent for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. In the past few weeks, I have been getting tons of leads. Some are panning out and others aren't. Some of the people respond when I leave them messages or e-mails and others don't.
Then I get the ones I just don't understand. I get the ones who have to see the property today or tomorrow and they can't wait. It has to be now. Another agent and I were talking about this today because I showed a listing of his last week to one of those has to be now people. She wanted to see a condo last week Wednesday. She couldn't do it any other day. I already had people for that evening so I couldn't do it. I told her I would give her back to the company and maybe someone else could take her. I got a call from her the next day insisting we take her that night. It was pouring, but we did. She had cash, loved the condo, was going to write an offer and I haven't heard from her since. I've e-mailed and texted her and I got one response. I'm busy at work.
Ok, what is it about the world Realtor? Is it synonymous with "you get no life", "you are at my beck and call"? I just had another one e-mail me about 10 minutes ago. She requested to see a condo a few days ago. The only information she put down was 11 or 12:00, but not which day. I just got the e-mail saying she wants to see it tomorrow morning. Ah sorry, but tomorrow's been taken since Monday.
Nobody screams at their doctor, lawyer or dentist when they don't get prompt service. Why do they think Realtors have no lives. It is just rude! I have also started telling buyers that they must have a pre-approval or proof of cash before we start driving all over. I spent 3 months with that couple who were never able to get pre-approved even after they told me that they were.
